Cell Phones Reducing Number of Landlines in Mississippi

Mississippi trumps the national average when it comes to the number of households doing away with landline phones and substituting it with a cell phone. The spike in wireless is causing concern on the national level.

A new report out from the National Center for Health Statistics shows a national increase in the number of folks hanging up on landline phones and reaching instead for a cell phone. Mississippi is one of a few states growing at a much faster rate than the rest of the country with a larger than average increase over the past three years.
